I am being realistic.
How many people do you think will install a snap called
felicianotech-docker when there’s already a
docker snap? Albeit, outdated.
How many people will run the
felicianotech-docker command for the Docker CLI? Which would also mean Bash scripts would be broken since they expect a
docker command. Unless I get someone to approve an alias, any snap I make won’t be able to have a command called
Not to mention what happens to snaps like the
circleci snap that relies on the
docker snap and the
:docker interface it offers? There’s no easy way to notify every snap that relies on the Docker snap’s interface that there’s a different snap they should point to. At least not for an outsider user like me.
It’s not realistic to expect a simple fork to fix this ecosystem issue without Canonical’s/Snapcraft’s help. I created this thread not because I can’t run a recent version of Docker, I’m fully capable of figuring that out. I want to make sure this specific snap/namespace can get some love.
